Crown Molding #2: Coping, Paint, 1/2 Install, and a New Direction

06-09-2010 06:16 AM by Todd Clare | 3 comments »

Progress! After cutting the modling on the jig (which worked really well, by the way), some coping saw skill building and some creative Dremel-ing, the end of the first 12’ piece was complete: The first piece destined for the wall was one of the 14’ pieces, so I cut that square on both ends. Patty then painted them with the primer and pain we selected, Benjamin Moore Navajo White in Semi-Gloss (see modification, below). We left the 12’ piece in its original 14...

The Wine Rack #9: Large Racks Complete

06-09-2010 05:56 AM by Todd Clare | 2 comments »

Although still distracted by the crown molding project, as well as the “rip off the front porch and redesign it” project with the architect we hired, I have found some time to continue on the wine rack. I used the template to flush-trim the larger racks to the final shape and surface. My search for double sided tape ended up with no success (Rockler’s supplier isn’t making it, Woodcraft was out, etc. Need to start searching those internets for it), so I added the ...

Extremely Average #158: The Gang Says "Hi"

06-09-2010 05:33 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

Hello All, Many of the past stars of my blog made cameo appearences tonight. The Twins, Archie The Mallet, and of course, Marey the jig saw, all helped out today. The jig, which is grotesquely over engineered, is comeing along nicely. I also thing that the accompanying narrative is one of my better ones. I hope you all enjoy it. Brian p.s. For those who enjoyed the story of “Winston the Camel”, I am pleased to announce that Josephine has writt...

Lighting got my computer on May 27…People say computers can be addictive,I say not so!

What was being done on LJ? I just had to know, I couldn’t wait! My skin would crawl from wonder of how did Steve’s chair turn out? I got my unit back today, all my questions got answered…Are co...

Sometimes you find all the right time. Time for the family, work, obligations, responsibilities, projects. Though, for me, hardly ever can I do all that should be done. Right now, I’m trying to squeeze in a few words while my lunch cooks, then back to my latest project. This one’s really….......well you’ll see, eventually. I love cool quotes. A favorite, from John Lennon, is, “life is what happens to you, while you’re busy making other plans”. ...

Nine days ago, that funny looking fellow in the picture had just finished sizing up the four sides of a new box out of some old Oak…The joining of the four sides went without event, and was done in his usual manner… Marking, Drilling for Scroll Saw room, and then cutting and fitting…I keep telling him there are easier, more exact ways of doing this, but he will not listen!! What a knot head…When he got those together, he had himself a little sanding party I think he...

Playset #1: The plan

06-08-2010 10:42 PM by Roostermiester | 4 comments »

I’ve been planning this playset for nearly a year now and it is now finally in the making. I have built up some walls to level the play area using 6×6 PT timbers that were reclaimed from a school playground that was being renovated. Some of the lumber for this project came from a used playset that I bought for a couple hundred bucks last fall (mostly for the slide and swings). The rest of it I got off of CL for free from what used to be a redwood deck (I’ve also made some ...

Bench Hook - Versatile shop made clamping device

06-08-2010 09:42 PM by David Craig | 9 comments »

I am sure most wood carvers are familiar with this one, as the bench hook is probably one of the first shop made contraptions relief carvers would make for themselves. I do find them quite useful for any task in which I need both my hands and the piece I am trying to hold down is irregularly shaped, a piece that I don’t want marred, or one that is too small to be effectively held in place by the bench cookies. While I know many woodworkers are already familiar with the contraption, I ha...

A journey into the workshop. #59: Bummed out by the weather...

06-08-2010 06:18 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

So as y’all by now know I am anxious to get my fence along the bayou put back up after Hurricane Ike, took it, and several small, and one large tree just on the city side of it down. Now those trees just on the city side weren’t ONLY on the city side, but more like 90% on the city side. I guess since I own 10% of the stumps, and it is interfering with MY fence, I had to take the stumps out. In true red, white, and blue Texas tradition, the method chosen was of course… Bar...
